Lays: 4

Speed thee far,—
Fancy lends thee her car;—
Over ocean away
Speed to holier day.

Ocean's swell
Bears on its bosom the shell;
Love shall open the sail
Full to the favoring gale.

Wing of might,
Sent from the fountain of light,
High on billows of air
Thee, in triumph, shall bear.

Youth shall bring
Wine from perennial spring,—
Over the goblet shall shine
Halo of glory divine.

Round the throne,
Beauty shall loosen her zone;—
Melting in kindling shower,
Spirit shall fill thee with power.
